GameRevolution's Top 25 Super Nintendo Games Of All Time (Full List)

In my eyes, Super Mario World is 2D platforming perfection. It was undoubtedly the SNES game I sunk the most of my time into thanks to its incredible level design, amazing world map, and flawless controls. Some believe Super Mario Bros. 3 is the superior experience, but I beg to differ. The excellent incorporation of Yoshi and the feather power up were wonderful additions that took the franchise to new heights… literally.
Square's time-traveling RPG Chrono Trigger will go down in history as one of the greatest role-playing experiences ever. It's got a great story with multiple endings, an unforgettable cast of diverse characters, and some of the most eye-grabbing art available on the platform. Crono and the gang go on one heck of an epic quest, a quest that should not be missed by any self-proclaimed gamer.
"Super" doesn't even begin to describe Samus' exploration-heavy action game on the SNES. With some of the most ingenious level design in all of gaming that encourages exploration and makes backtracking actually fun, Super Metroid is easily one of the finest experiences on Nintendo's second home console. Oh, and that music. So captivating.
Yet again we run into a bit of numbering confusion thanks to localization, but don't let that scare you away from what is arguably the best role-playing game of all time. Final Fantasy III (or VI if you're going by Japan releases) is a piece of gaming art. The soundtrack is easily the best collection of gaming music I have ever heard, and the story is simply mind-blowing. It's truly amazing how much of an emotional impact a 16-bit game can have.
Honestly, did you really think we'd choose anything but A Link to the Past for the top spot? Only a few games are serious contenders for the prestigious title of "Greatest Game of All Time," and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is one of them. With a massive world map to explore, excellently-crafted dungeons, and an earth-shattering dark world mechanic, there's so much to love about this SNES classic. A sequel is coming to the 3DS later this year and let's just say the insanely high level of expectation is most definitely justified.
